Whilst the exact construction date is unknown, this home was probably constructed in the late 1890s or early 1900s - it was occupied by members of the Rowe family around this time.

Mary Elizabeth Rowe purchased Section 58, Urenui Township, in November 1895 - a further mortgage was taken against the property in 1897. Mary sold the home to A. D. McDonald in October 1904.

The above image of the home was probably taken around 1900, and it is likely those standing outside are Mary Elizabeth Rowe, and her daughter Maud Rowe (later Maud Jury).
